's brother, mike, throughout the crisis and yesterday after we heard the terrible news. he said it best. i can associate with my brother getting in a car wreck or having cancer, but terrorism and neederland, texas, don't go together. he was described as a great family man and a fantastic co-worker, a leader who mentored countless individuals during his tenure. he was also known for his spontaneous wit. victor moved from neederland, texas, to move closer to work. mr. speaker, victor was killed not because of what he did. he was killed because of who he was. he was killed because he was an american. a radical islamic al qaeda group by the name of the significant anytories in blood claimed responsibility for this terrorist attack. those who seek to destroy us and kill indiscriminantly. they hate us for who we are and what we stand for. diplomacy is not in their vocabulary. two other americans were also killed in this attack. their names were gordon rowan of sumpter, oregon, and fredrick of katy, texas. the algerian military retook the compound after three days. they found that 34 other hostag

of information but i want to quote the former chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, admiral mike mullen, you said after the a.r.b. was issued, as someone who has run large organizations and the secretary of state has been very clear about taking responsibility here, it was from my interpb -- perspective it was not reasonable in terms of having a specific level of knowledge that was very specifically resident in her staff and over time certainly didn't bring that to her attention. that was admiral mike mullen. secretary, how many cables did you say arrived to the state department, how long did it take you to read 1.4 million cables? >> i tried to read 1.4 million cables, i don't think i'd be sitting here today, i'd be collapsed somewhere. i appreciate what admiral mullen said because when you do sit on top of large organizations, in his case the united states military which is huge, in my case the state department and usaid, you put into place processes and you have to trust the judgment the good sense of the people in your organization, so those 1.43 million cables they come into the state d

[laughter] so when the mike wasn't working i told all sorts of embarrassing secrets about jay nordlinger and i trust all of you got them in full lurid detail. this past week has been a momentous week. president obama was sworn in to a second term. i guess what made the news is beyonce apparently lip synced throughout the inaugural. not as widely reported was the fact that president obama did as well. who knew that his teleprompter could play music? we saw this week an ode to liberalism, unabashed, unapologetic, i have to say sitting there it occurred to me somewhere the sea must be rising now. and it is easy for us as conservatives to look at the november election and that exhult -- exultant, unabashed embrace of the left and to have a moment's despair. let me say this room is critical to preventing that to happen. "national review" has a lornings -- long, long history of standing athwart history and yelling "halt." we can stop this. we can turn it around and in fact i am right now incredibly,

such scurrilous attacks on any politician that i can remember. i would challenge mike pauma -- my former republican friends to be fair. i used to put republicans because i would trust them or on foreign policy. i think anybody who is fair and would look at the president's record -- he has done a wonderful job of advancing our interests as well as protecting us. once again, thank you 4 c- span.org so much. i am enjoying the coverage. host: naomi tweets in -- the metro stations here are very crowded. as we mentioned, metro is planning a rush hour schedule, which means a train every five- six minutes at every station throughout the day because of the large crowds. about 800,000 is the current estimate, to attend the inauguration wendy is on american calling in from sydney, australia. good afternoon, good evening, good morning to you. caller: it is good evening here. host: are you watching online? caller: i am watching on tv, on cable. i spent a good portion of my adult life here, but i am constantly reading -- reading the news about the state. i still consider myself a think sometimes my pe

. winston-salem, north carolina. mike, you are on "the washington journal." caller: i think they should get in, do their jobs and get out before they become corrupt. i am all in favor of pay reductions and benefit reductions. they are criminals. host: from the drawing board section of the washington post this morning, an editorial cartoon showing on the left a picture of rosie the riveter. on the right, rosie the rocketer which is referring to the pentagon's decision to lift the ban on women in combat roles. coming up on this edition of "the washington journal," we will be talking with kayla williams about the decision to lift the ban on combat roles. later we will take a look at the best and worst bosses on capitol hill. we will be right back after this break.

.s. citizens in places that have benefited our nation. oliver north is the host of stories."ar mike is next on the republican line in indianapolis. caller: in the last four years, the only factor in the cap of hillary clinton is the miles she has trouble. a relationship to india, china, all of our allies has been very bad. with russia, there's hardly any relationship existing. there has been no significant accomplishment that she can mention. no peace between israel and palestine. all the arab dictators, but missed a huge opportunity in 2009 when the green revolution was going on in 2009, and they closed their eyes, allowing the iranians to massacre people on the street. so i don't think that she has anything to show off. it has been a terrible four years as far as farm policy. host: what you make of john kerry taking over the position? are you hopeful you will see a different course taken? caller: i don't think so. he enjoys being in the limelight a lot. this is something he has been looking forward to for a long time. i think he will overshadow the president in many ways. i don't think th

[applause] >> i have one other thing to add. we made a number of personnel announcements today. there is going to be an incredible team that denis mcdonough will help lead, but i thought i would take the occasion to just embarrass somebody. some of you may know that today is david's last day in the white house. i had to hide this in the end of my remarks because i knew he would not want me to bring it up, so we had some secret squirrel stuff going on here to avoid him thinking that we were going to talk about him, but as many of you know, david has been with me from t

congresswomen in the house and they'll still be -- there'll still be an effort. mike pence is now governor of indiana so there'll be a continued effort. you would think out of a $3.7 trillion budget we could find somewhere to cut an certainly that's one good place to start. >> if any finalized budget does include funding for that, will you support it or vote against it? >> there's two things going on. the budget doesn't specify much of anything except numbers on the page. then we'll go through appropriations bills. the problem we've had is appropriations bills haven't come out of committee and haven't had a chance to debate on the floor. i presume we'll have debate on that and the house will continue its policy of defunding planned parenthood but that's one specific part of one appropriations bill. thank you. >> it's one thing to put forward the idea of a balanced budget but to achieve it, the leadership has caved each and every time. to get rid of the boehner rule now, what makes you think we can bring it back in may? if i were the senate democrats and the president, you caved before, why

of armed forces and national guard. governor mike and governor christine and all of my fellow washingtonians. this, we know. our world is changing faster and more dramatically than ever before. once in a lifetime events now seem to happen with startling clarity. we have seen the greatest financial crisis since the great depression. unimaginable human tragedies like sandy hook elementary. but we also bear witness to rapid breakthroughs in technology, medicine and the understanding of our universe. everyday, i am left and all and how much we are able to achieve and heartbroken over the tragedies we have had to endure. we live in extraordinary times. we also live in an extraordinary state filled with extraordinary people. where the world sees uncertainty, we washingtonians see opportunity. we all feel a profound responsibility to our children and our grandchildren. we have a spirit of innovation that has changed the world. you know what, we are not done.

that when you do ask your question, ask them for the mike and stand and identify yourself and keep your questions short. we we have time, we will get back to you. yes her, right there. >> -- please identify yourself. >> jack james. i want to ask you about whether or not you think there is enough support coming from europe to deal with those issues. we just talked about germany, as you all know, going in and want to go out with us. in afghanistan, and molly, there has been criticism about us going back. is it not the case that we acted -- that we expect, if we can get it, that europe would like to have a large footprint in, and can you expect that that is something that we can see more of in the future as we face our own constraints at home? >> i think the constraints in europe are even greater than ours. the public will to engage in that is even less than ours. that is why a lot of questions are being raised here by members of the congress. they are saying, why are we still in germany? why are 40,000 or so troops there. can we bring them home? and, how much do they stand up when we real
committee. mr. conyers. >> thank you very much, chairman mike thompson. this is our second hearing. it has been a good one. and i am deeply grateful for everybody's comments. i have a number of things -- maybe we can do them all. maybe we cannot. i noticed the president, in his remarks, it seems like he has almost given up negotiating. he is saying here's what we will do and everybody that is with me should get on board. but between these simple things , would any of you just a volunteer with you think is the most important accomplishments that those of us who have been through these hearings could accomplish in the 113th congress? a ban semi-automatic assault weapons, require background checks for all gun sales. repeal thart. the ban high commit -- and high capacity ammunition magazines. reduce violent crime in our communities. i just mental health crisis -- and just mental health crisis were 25% more of the population might come under that category. who can comment about any particular order in this undertaking that you would like to see us start off with? any volunteers? >> thank you, r
